Dear Friends,

Thanks for coming out for 2018 opening day and grabbing some daffodils, drinking some wine, and meeting our Wine Maker & Chef in Residence, Chris Lang

This coming Sunday (May 20th) and Memorial Day Sunday (20th), you can still pick up those little bulbs that have been starved for attention for so long, our family Daffodils. We're splitting the fragrant Narcissus this week. Also some additional King Alfred Trumpets.  

This week we're featuring a flight of Spring wines including Italian Pinot Grigio, New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, and Maryland Vidal Blanc, Chardonnay and Rosé ($10).

 Taste these with Wine Maker & Chef Chris Lang who will also sample a few hors d'oeuvres which you can make easily to wow your friends at graduation parties, birthday dinners, reunions etc.  Spring is, after all, the season of annual graduations, ceremonies, and informal gatherings. 

Chris has a special cheese & wine hors d'oeuvres plate ($10) or bring a picnic and plan to relax awhile with your friends and a glass of your favorite new wine.  Wine tastings are $10; no charge for tours of the Manor House with Maggie which are at 2pm and 3:30 pm, sharp (20 min), meet at the corner of the Wine Cottage. 

Heralds of Camelot,

"It's May, It's May, that gorgeous holiday
When every maiden prays that her lad will be a cad
It's mad, it's gay, alive, a lust display
Those dreary vows that everyone takes, everyone breaks
Everyone makes divine mistakes
The Lusty Month of May..."

To advance further that last line, beer is available for the men.
